7mile Rim, Moab 3/27/11 Pics
 
Had a great day on the trail yesterday. Actually got the date wrong, 3/26/11, lol. Those attending: Julie & her Husband Jeff, her Son Jarrod, his dogs Chevy & Aussie, Chad & Ariah, Bruce and Hack.

Julie please post more pics in here. you were always out front & I had the little jeep this time. I got a few glimpses of her from time to time, lol.

The four rigs sported 8", 7", 4.5" & 3.5" lifts. The trail was rated difficult by Charles Wells. However he stated that it was less dificult than Top of the World trail, I beg to differ. Nevertheless, Wells' book once again proved to be invaluable, providing perfect waypoints & directions throughout. A must have. Thanks to Bob for suggesting it.

Here's the Crew. Once again, Jeff & Julie were impressive leaders. Please note the nasty hill we just traversed behing us. Ask Chad how much he enjoyed that part of the trail, lol.

Every time I see pics of Moab I ask myself what the hell I'm doing in Cleveland. Looks like you guys had a great time! I hate you! :D

Ageless Stranger 03-27-2011 02:15 PM

I don't know what you're doing in Cleveland either... :rolleyes:

I was seriously thinking about trying to make it for Memorial Day. But the gas alone would be around $1000. If i can discipline myself to go easy on mods for the next year maybe I can get out there in 2012.

I'm trying to save my gas money now... Hurry up and you can catch me, then you can go in June when I do. :thumb:

Who wants to tow my junk there? :D

Awesome pictures, beautiful as always. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Julie, and thanks Jeff for spotting. That was the toughest obstacle of the day in my opinion. Spun my junk pretty good right there.

jcf 03-27-2011 08:33 PM

You are getting to be really good at this bruce, you have done stuff that a lot of people won't even try & it was effortless to you so I think you should be ready for this

Just kidding! no way Jose' I won't do that one after seeing the black jeep on it's side

G54 03-27-2011 08:40 PM

I'd try it. Straight up that right side and straddle what looks like two cuts in the rocks. Then pick up the pieces.

I was impressed with my little jeep. It got us through some pretty big obstacles. You still make things look easier than they actually are. As far as that hill, no fricken way!!! I know my limits, they are plentiful.
But thanks for the kind words Julie.

yer' I know he put the camera down at a crucial moment but it's hard to keep it on the action sometimes

Hill looks fun to me. :cool:

Hey Tim :wavey:, that is very very steep & even rock crawlers have a hard time getting up it, some of those rocks are very big

No it was just me taking it from up on the other side with the zoom out, no one was hurt that day

That's what makes it fun. And I rock...I don't touch mud anymore. I've had my fill of it with mud trucks I use to build. ;)

I like the challenges. :dance: Missouri has made me a well rounded wheeler. I'm use to hills like that with slat and loose dirt/mud on it. Of course a well rounded rig and picking lines has a lot to do with it.

The hill is no dought very challenging, But I'd try it. :)

Dempsey 03-27-2011 09:18 PM

Awesome pics. Makes me want to go out there with Josh.

Barrie 03-27-2011 10:13 PM

I think I would have needed a tow on a couple of those spots. :D Great pics Julie, Bruce.
